Change Comes Calling, Eventually

Change comes around often in the early years of parenting. You go from pregnant to being responsible for an entire human in one dramatic instant.

You embrace the change. You adjust. You learn. You try.

You go from one, to two, to three … each time it’s a new change, adjustment, learning curve. You never stop trying. 

Your children change too. They go from being 100% dependent on you, to fighting you for their independence, to actually believing they don’t need you at all.

The hardest part is to accept that change.

Some people are good with change, others … not so much.

Change needs to be viewed with an open mind and courage, lots of courage. Courage to take that first step, accept it, roll with it, and to actually turn that page …

-The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.- (1)

On the other side of that leap of courage and faith, comes the nirvana.

If you are strong enough to put the past where it belongs (behind you), and focus your attention on making the new reality your priority, then you will look for the good, you will seek it out and every positive moment will feed your self-confidence.

Positivity is key when you are embarking on a new phase of your life, a new chapter.

  1. I hate change. Like really, really hate it. It unsettles me and makes my anxiety bad. I know it’s part and parcel of life though so I keep telling myself to build a bridge and get over it.

  2. Change can be hard but it’s definitely best to try and embrace it and to be positive. My eldest is starting school in September so big changes for all of us are just around the corner xx #postsfromtheheart

  3. Completely agree, change needs to happen with an open mind. It’s hard sometimes when the change is unexpected and while it’s happening you’re still stuck in your old ways. Staying positive is so key, this is a lovely post thank you for sharing with #GlobalBlogging!

    1. You are right about the struggle when it’s actually happening. I’m not as good at accepting as I should be.

  5. I’m really starting to feel some of the independence creeping in – in the simplest of things like the girls happily playing upstairs and in the garden with minimal supervision. It’s quite telling that those high dependency days are drifting away.

  6. This is beautifully observed, and very true! I really struggled with having a newborn, and couldn’t help thinking about my previous life. What you say about pushing the past aside to make what is happening now, your new reality, a priority, is very apt. Although I am finding each stage the children have gone through since they were babies, quite easy to embrace. I know it probably won’t always be that way though, but if that happens I’ll work to embrace it!

  7. This is so true, and even in the smallest of moments. I always try to make sure that a tantrum or ‘episode’ don’t affect the rest of our day, because once it has been done, the necessary parenting action has been taken, that’s it. It past now, so we continue with our fun day. Great post #BigPinkLink
